My friends blasted me for being totally unaware of the landmark Supreme Court decisions that were handed down last week. I knew the day of after all the hoopla that followed across the internet, but I’ve decided to endeavor to pay more attention to what is happening in the world despite being shackled to my desk working on my thesis.

No matter what side of the debate you land on for the the cases that go before the Supreme Court, you can go to their website to check out what’s on the docket. The calendar near the top of the page shows you when they’re in session and what is being debated before them. Use the handy key ¬†on the right of the calendar to decipher what’s going on each day.

Missed the Recent Arguments? Well you can totally check them out by scrolling down the main page where you can find transcripts and audio for the hearings. You can also check out what’s new and their recent decisions all on the main page.

Along the top of the page, you’ll find a navigation strip with the categories: Opinions, Oral Arguments, Case Documents, Rules and Guidelines, News Media, and About the Court.

My favorite section is About the Court where you can learn the history of the court, get biographies of the current justices, and more!
